Digitally Tuned Ford Mach-E Is Closer To the Notion of a Mustang

Digitally Tuned Ford Mach-E Is Closer To the Notion of a Mustang

Still not a Mustang, but less of a high-riding crossover anyway

There’ve been a lot of voices speaking against Ford’s decision to use the Mustang moniker on a crossover, be it a fully-electric one, in tandem with a second name, derived from the iconic Mach 1 nameplate. Some say Ford’s naming gamble might cost the company in the long term, but we’re not here to discuss that.

Today, we stumbled upon a digitally rendered Mach-E that in our view, is closer to what the Mustang name entails. Albeit still a crossover, you’ll see that the vehicle tweaked tastefully by Abimelec Design oozes a lot more sportiness than the real Mach-E EV.

AMG GT Silver Echo: A Modern Mercedes SLR Rendering That Pays Tribute to Stirling Moss

AMG GT Silver Echo: A Modern Mercedes SLR Rendering That Pays Tribute to Stirling Moss

Based on the Mercedes-AMG GT

Legendary racing driver Sir Stirling Moss passed away on April 12, at the age of 90. The Brit became an icon in the 1950s when he raced in Formula One and competed in major series that included the 24 Hours of Le Mans, 12 Hours of Sebring, and Mille Miglia. He won important races for a variety of automakers, including the 1955 Mille Miglia in a Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR. In the same year, he raced the iconic Mercedes W196 in Formula One. This collaboration was revived in 2009 when Moss helped the Germany company create the limited-edition Mercedes SLR McLaren Stirling Moss. 11 years have passed since then, and auto design Costas Phouphoullides rendered a modern version of that car to pay one final tribute to Moss.

Does This Modern Ferrari F40 Deserve to Come to Life?

Does This Modern Ferrari F40 Deserve to Come to Life?

And yeah, that’s a rhetorical question. Obviously. Duh!

The Ferrari F40 was 30 years old in 2017. In 2027, it will celebrate its 40th birthday. So what better occasion for Ferrari to bring back the legendary nameplate with a limited-run supercar that hosts the F40’s old ethos inside modern clothing?

We’re dreaming, of course, but so was Naoto Kobayashi when he concocted a sleek-looking, low-slung Ferrari F40 concept that would abide by today’s design trends. Sure, these are just sketches at this point, but imagine what sort of Prancing Horse goodness they could spawn.

You Have to Check Out This Mazda RX-10 Vision Longtail Supercar for Le Mans

We want Mazda to make a Le Mans comeback with one of these, please

Mazda is no stranger to Le Mans. In fact, the Japanese outlet tasted success at Le Mans on June 23, 1991, finished first in front of the likes of Mercedes-Benz and Jaguar, becoming the first Asian carmaker to win the famed 24-hour race.

Helping Mazda on its way to victory was the 787B rotary-powered race car drove by Johnny Herbert at an average speed of 127.62 mph. So there’s no wonder why so many car aficionados and Mazda fans have been wondering when and if will the carmaker make a comeback at Le Mans. While there’s no info on such plans, we wish Mazda would decide to return to France with a prototype that looks like this one.

Meet Traycan, the Porsche Pickup Truck We Will Never Get

Meet Traycan, the Porsche Pickup Truck We Will Never Get

Truck + Taycan = Traycan. Do you get it now?

A truck is all that Porsche is missing from its current lineup. Even so, it’s extremely hard to imagine that even in its wildest corporate dreams the carmaker would think of coming to the market with a pickup truck, even in the context where a lot of brands are rushing to jump the e-truck market.

You’ve go Tesla, of course, with the Cybertruck, then there’s Rivian and its R1T, Bollinger B2, and the future all-electric Ford F-150, plus some other equally interesting contraptions. So, where would a

Taycan

based pickup truck slot in, then?

This Cyberpunk Countach Is The Electric Lamborghini We Need

This Cyberpunk Countach Is The Electric Lamborghini We Need

Any owners willing to convert their Countach?

Just so we’re clear, Lamborghini isn’t keen on jumping head-first into the electrification bandwagon. So far, Sant’Agata Bolognese has been keen on tipping its toes into the ocean with the Aventador-based, V-12-hybrid Sian FKP 37, but the company’s officials are adamant that an all-electric Lambo won’t arrive earlier than 2026.

If that’s the case, then let’s play the following scenario: the year is 2090, Lamborghini has a couple of EV supercars on offer, yet an extremely affluent and eccentric collector decides to retrofit his Lamborghini Countach with an all-electric powertrain and a cyberpunk-like appearance. What would that look like?

SCG Wants to Make a Kit Car Out of This Sketch

SCG Wants to Make a Kit Car Out of This Sketch

Jim Glickenhaus wants to bring this Scuderia to more people and this is what it might look like

Since Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus focuses mainly on designing and building boutique, high-performance exotic sports cars, it’s safe to say that the 99 percenters out there can only dream of driving the likes of SCG 003, 004, 006, and 007. Even the Steve McQueen-inspired Baja Boot is bound to cost an arm and a leg.

Have no fear, though. Mr. Glickenhaus is apparently not ignoring the masses, as he wants his company to develop an affordable car that would lure in more customers for the brand. Are we on board with this? Well, of course we are.

This Mercury Grand Marquis Wagon Should Be Built Right Away

This Mercury Grand Marquis Wagon Should Be Built Right Away

You would be the talk of the town on your Sunday drive with the family

Ford’s Mercury arm sold the Grand Marquis between 1975 and 2011. It was initially a more upmarket version of the existing Mercury Marquis, but come 1983, it became a model in its own right.

Initially, the Grand Marquis was offered by Mercury in three body styles: two-door coupé and four-door sedan. The five-door station wagon came in 1983 and was nothing else than a Mercury Colony Park without the acres of wood trim.

But now, thanks to a very gifted pixel manipulator, our eyes are spoiled with a V-8-powered, low stance Grand Marquis Wagon.

 This Alfa Romeo 8C-R Tazio Is Pure Hypercar Material

This Alfa Romeo 8C-R Tazio Is Pure Hypercar Material

One of the best design studies we’ve seen all year

The name Alfa Romeo has always been tightly tied to the world of motorsport. The 8C-R Tazio design study fully reflects that bond, as its name itself is a tribute to Italian race driver Tazio Nuvolari, who manhandled grand prix Alfas back when you could hardly find faster vehicles on the planet.

At the same time, the Alfa Romeo 8C-R Tazio is both a nod back to one of the most intricate designs to come out of the brand’s studios - the Disco Volante – and a celebration of the company’s 110th anniversary. And the best thing about it: it was imagined by an independent designer who’s had a long-lasting crush on Alfa Romeo.

The Briggs and Stratton Hybrid: How a Washing-Machine Maker Built a Car

The Briggs and Stratton Hybrid: How a Washing-Machine Maker Built a Car

One that worked, too

The trend that had non-car manufacturers taking a stab at building a car is not a modern affair. Way before Apple was reportedly working on Project Titan or vacuum maker Dyson laid out plans to build an all-electric hypercar or Sony unveiled the Vision-S concept, Briggs and Stratton, a company known for its lawnmower engines and washing machines had a stab at building a car that used both electricity and internal combustion power to get around.

It was called the Hybrid prototype and came as an answer to the 1970s gas crisis as well as an attempt to move away from fossil fuels – at least partially. Oh, and it also sat on six wheels and had a full-fiberglass body.

Supercar Blondie Wants You To Enjoy This Video of the Bugatti Atlantic Concept

Is it just me or does Bugatti dream a lot more than it produces?

Like the rest of the world, we’ve been itching for a second Bugatti model – at this point, one that isn’t another special or limited edition version of the Chiron. Over the years, there have been at least a couple of close calls. Think about the Bugatti 16C Galibier, the four-door model that would have propelled the company into super-sedan territory. After its debut, though, it fell into a cesspool of developmental hell and never saw the light of production. Close, but no cigar. Another fine example, was the front-engined, two-door Bugatti Atlantic. Supercar Blondie got the chance to hang out with that very concept, and you should really check out the video below!
